You might be ready for warmer temps, but the weather is definitely not on the same wavelength. One minute it’s sunny and cloudless; the next, it’s rainy and gray. We get it — it’s a challenge to figure out what to wear when dealing with unpredictable temperature changes. Before we enter the consistently warm days that late May and early June promise, it’s best to have multiple layers on hand — specifically, a lightweight spring sweater.
It’s no secret that Amazon’s fashion hub has recently become a mecca for affordable staples and standout pieces. They’ve got just about every spring sweater you can imagine — think warm yet breathable, shines by itself, and fits layers underneath. Opt for delicate open-weave cable knit and crochet fabric, fun prints, and brighter colors to transform the classic winter wardrobe staple into something more suitable for spring. And, of course, vests, cardigans, short-sleeve, boat neck, and off-the-shoulder cuts are welcome too, as a departure from chunky, winter-ready sweaters.
Our picks include a range of fabrics, sleeve lengths, colors, and sizes. Plus, all eight options are available for fast shipping if you’re a Prime member (or sign up for a free 30-day trial). So what are you waiting for? Keep scrolling to shop the best spring sweaters on Amazon, all under $40.
